Parenting Teenagers

I know how God Feels about his children when I look at mine, all the Love and all the frustration Divine.

I’m tired of trying to get ungrateful and unredeemed children to obey my rules all day

I know how God felt

I’m tired of emptying myself to give them what they need, and getting blamed for all the problems in their lives. 

I know how God felt

I’m tired of watching my children who look like me, walk with me and know my heart choose the goods of the world over me

I know how God felt

I’m tired of the sadness my children cause me with their rebellious attitudes, disobedience and rejection 

I know how GOd felt

I’m tired of showing mercy and grace and forgiveness when all they show is contempt and disdain

I know how God felt

I’m so tired of the constant battles, the blatant sin, and constant desire to go their own way

I know how God feels. 

I’m tired of the accusation when i try to protect them, the hard hearts when i try to teach them and the dull ears when i try to speak

I know how God feels. 

I’m tired of waiting all day to see them when they wait all day for me to be gone

I’m tired of reaching out through texting, emails, and provisions while they ignore my calls, delete my messages and refuse the food i prepare 

I know how God feels. 

I’m tired of them fighting with each other, being unkind, hateful and unsympathetic toward one another

I know how God feels. 

I’m tired of the lies about me, the injustice, the arrogance and silence they display. 

I know How God feels. 

My heart is broken at their rejection. 

I know how God feels. 

I’m tired of trying to get them to do what is good and right and it’s exhausting me trying to enforce the rules-Lord do something? 

He did 

because he knows how I feel.
